Abstract

The main stages of development of Ukrainian-Polish inter-state relations are investigated. The problem issues of bilateral cooperation are analyzed and possible ways of their solution are outlined. The place and role of Poland in implementing the security policy and European integration of Ukraine are determined. It was established that the most destructive in the relations between Ukraine and Poland was the mythologization of the tragic pages of the Ukrainian-Polish history of the period of the beginning and the middle of the twentieth century. In this regard, it is indicated the necessity to work out a coherent and scientifically grounded position on the most conflict-related issues of the common historical past of the Ukrainian and Polish peoples. It was stated that with the decline in the living standards of the population in Ukraine caused by the war, Ukrainians began to travel abroad massively in search of work, including Poland. A quantitative increase in Ukrainians has led to an increase in the influence of right-wing radical forces and a reduction in tolerance in Polish society. It is stressed that constructive cooperation between Ukrainians and Poles in different spheres of bilateral cooperation is an important condition for eliminating from the political practice of confrontational moments and capable of strengthening the subjectivity of Ukraine and Poland in the international arena.
